From my perspective as an eLearning developer/learning technologist, it has been quite a rollercoaster. As identified by the […]

Random thots…

I have trawled through the App-store and Google-play for apps to try out and recommend to lecturers.  In truth, there are countless of such lists so I will just link to them rather than re-invent the wheel.

Equity in classroom, Consistency in the learning experience: Mobile Meeting 3

As you are aware I have been looking at screen sharing apps. Have you had a chance to try out teamviewer yourself? What did you think? I don’t seem to be able to use it on the DIT network which I suppose isn’t unexpected due to security considerations. I could use it when I set […]
